More on CSX: Q1 earnings beat on both revenue and a per share basis, despite anemic coal volume growth due to slumping demand. Net earnings still managed to rise by 14% Y/Y however, as the railroad reported an 8.5% increase in intermodal volume, which helped to offset the decline. Intermodal volume accounts for about 35% of CSX's overall business, while coal volume accounts for about 25%.
